"Close your eyes during 'Not Fade Away' and you can imagine that you're hearing a Winterland boot from 1977."

so saith Andy Greene of Rolling Stone on the 12/31/09 Further performance at Bill Graham Civic Center, San Francisco...

funny... the cassidy was the highlight of that show for me.... we left just as NFA was starting up. it might have been pretty good.... but we were beat tired from the hour+ of slogging that had preceded it.... not to mention the thickest cloud of marijuana smoke i have ever experienced -- haze would be an understatement.

yeah, I can safely say that no one at that show would pass a drug test the next few weeks- so that WAS you sitting in our area- haha
even the wharfrats seemed happier than usual :)

Me and my friends were sitting in the seats a little stage right. At the start of the show, the folks in the row below us was in a BIG hassle over some couple that insisted on sitting in their saved row.

The smog even mellowed out that snafu

Anyway, what did Jerry and Keith and Mickey and Billy and Donna really add? Just dead-weight to coin a pun, and now they, the Further Boyz, are lean and mean. Shit, Forget Winterland, I'm thinking '68 Shrine Everytime...

I can think of some pretty good 77 versions: 5-8-77, 9-3-77, 10-11-77 (played faster than the others), 12-29-77. Perhaps they are not as good as 11-15-71, but sometimes it's nice to mellow out and listen to Jerry jam.

hey I'm not a big fan of the post garcia stuff but I can see what that guy is talking about. I heard a Scarlet from one of the tours when Joan was in the band and it had a total 1977 grove to it.
